We headed to Denver to spend a few days with NADRA President, Shawn Miller. While in Denver we spent some time with Shawn and his family. We also took some time to visit NADRA members The Deck Super Store & Specialty Wood Products. We also had the opportunity to meet with Prospective member, Alpine Lumber.

Looks like we have a solid Colorado Chapter in its formation stage!



"It was great to spend some time with both of you and get to focus on NADRA for a couple days to get caught up and get to know both of you better...wish we could do it more often."
                                                  Shawn Miller
                                                  NADRA President

Below you will find a list of NADRA members and prospective members we visited during our time in the Denver area.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Specialty Wood Products
NADRA Member
Chris "Josh" Deguire - President
Aurora, CO.

Josh services a large area with several locations. Specialty Wood Products services much of the vacation home and ski resorts of Colorado and have locations in Utah and South Carolina. They do a large amount of full timbers 12x12 BIG STUFF! You should have seen all the cedar, man was that a great smell!
 
*Interesting Note: The Canadian government subsidizes much of their forest to the lumber companies.  The US has created a high tariff tax causing part of the rise in Cedar pricing.
 
In our conversations with Josh we came to the realization that many of the corrosion problems along our coastal regions are also a concern among our many inland resort areas. Many of the decks we saw at Breckenridge, Vail, Steamboat Springs and Telluride were all 20-30 and even 40 years old and must be replaced! Many of the fasteners had the same corrosion issues found with salt on our coastal regions... why? SALT (consumers use salt to melt away ice off walkways and decks).

The Deck Superstore:
NADRA Member
Steve Mitchell - President
Commerce City, CO
 
Steve, wife Mitzi and son Jonathan. Located in Denver, Co, Steve has created an atmosphere for outdoor living with samples of all of his products.  Steve serves many DIY including design, construction and material lists. The store is set up in such a way to make it easy for the end user to see all available products in the market.  Steve works with his wife, Mitzi and son, Jonathan who just graduated from college and is now working in the family business.
 
If you are ever in the Denver area, definitely stop by!

Alpine Lumber:
Prospective NADRA Member
Kevin Pask - Manager
Parker, CO
 
We enjoyed meeting with the folks at Alpine, we look forward to their involvement with NADRA in the future. They have 15 relocations, three tress plants, two millwork shops and two reload points. They are an employee owned business with an emphasis on home building and decking products. With a wide variety of materials they should be able to answer most all of your needs for that next project.

Had a great couple days with Michael and Heather. What a great opportunity to get some time together to focus on everything that is happening. NADRA would be lost without their efforts along with Margie. Be sure to thank them the first chance you get
